'Victory Over EU Intimidation’: Marine Le Pen Hails Italy's New Cabinet

06 June, 2018, 02:16 | Author: Bert Pena
  • Italy news- Giorgia Meloni and Matteo Salvini

The two parties won almost half of the Italian votes in the March 4 elections.

Conte has been appointed prime minister and, along with his cabinet, will be sworn in on Friday.

Mr Conte, a little-known 53-year-old law professor, is backed by the 5-Star Movement which grew out of a grassroots protest network, and the right-wing League who have issued a budget-busting agenda of sweeping tax cuts and higher welfare spending.

A gleeful Salvini, an ally of French far-right figurehead Marine Le Pen, said at a rally that he would like to have a country with "a few less illegal immigrants".

The post of finance minister is a sticking point in Five Star and League attempts to form a government together, after President Sergio Mattarella vetoed euroskeptic economist Paolo Savona on Sunday.

The government will be formally handed over later on Friday and will face a confidence vote later this week, which given the makeup of Parliament is likely to pass.

Salvini will be in Luxembourg Tuesday for a meeting of European Union interior ministers with the agenda set to be dominated by discussion of the EU's controversial Dublin rule, whereby would-be refugees must file for asylum in the first bloc member-state they enter.

Salvini, the bombastic and xenophobic leader of the League, who rose in politics in recent years on the back of incendiary and racist statements about migrants and Roma, is expected to take on the role of interior minister.

The new government features 18 ministers, including five women.

Melania Trump to skip G7, North Korea summits
Her absence from public events she would normally attend has sparked speculation in the United States media and on Twitter. The absence of the intensely private first lady has prompted widespread speculation and conspiracy theories.

While confirming Italy's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments, the new government's policy agenda calls for a lifting of European Union sanctions against Russian Federation as well as the opening of dialogue and partnerships, given Moscow's economic, commercial and strategic importance. In Italy, opposition politicians see the new government contract as "dangerous" and "illusionist".

Migration experts have stated that the appointment of such a radical leader will reduce rights of migrants and asylum seekers, in a country that already has difficulties in integration.

Many of the League's voters associate migrants with crime.

"Their actions so far have been a mix of extremism, anti-Europeanism and inequity".

"Gotta stay strong or the bully boys will be after you", he warned.

The alliance between the M5S and the League will have only a relatively narrow majority in the Italian senate, easing concerns among investors and officials in Brussels over the new government's decision-making.

Salvini has branded as "racist" advice from European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker for Italians to work harder and be less corrupt instead of blaming their woes on the EU.

"I think it's better to spend money in the countries of origin, and now if there are NGOs that want to work for free, that's fine", Salvini said.
